Where's MY Book?
A Guide For Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Youth, Their Parents & Everyone Else
Linda Gromko, MD is a Board Certified Family Physician who has worked with the transgender community for nearly eighteen years. She explains the basics of gender identity, sexual orientation, puberty, puberty blockers, hormone treatments, and gender affirming surgeries. She shares years of her patients’ wisdom and practical information on getting through every day in the best way possible—from coming out to parents, to school issues, to coping with depression, to love and sex.
Why is this book important? We know that transgender kids and their families need specialized information. Alarmingly, the suicide attempt rate among trans youth is close to half! This book is intended to give gender non-conforming kids some of the information they need to grow to be happy, productive, loving and loved. It’s intended to provide the information we need as parents, educators, and health care providers to do better with and for our kids.
“Honest, accurate, sensitive, and straightforward, Dr. Gromko’s advice and explanations are a breath of fresh air. ANYONE curious about this topic can benefit from her wisdom and clarity. Highly recommended!”
